Google Forms for tracking brews?

I am not a great note taker. To be honest, I really don't care to be. However, I find that sometimes I lose track of my ciders and wines as they age. I am cheap as well as lazy, so I won't buy any...

Once again, Jack Keller. I have made a Plum wine from his recipe twice and it game out well both times. I would say it was one of my easier, better wines so far.

I was worried when I started brewing 3 gallon batches in my aluminum pot. It worked just fine and boiled fairly quickly (I started with 140* water from the tap).

I have found that stopping a cider about 1.005 to 1.015 leave it plenty sweet for my taste and saves some of the flavors. That is not pear specific, but mostly just generic apple ciders.

I added 1oz bottles one at a time. Then rolled the keg and waited 1 day. Two, 1oz bottles was enough to get it some pear flavor.

That being said, I will NOT do that again. It would have been far...

I'm relocating from Fargo to St. Cloud this summer. I haven't been able to find any 'credible' homebrew shops online. Anybody know of one (or several) in the St. Cloud area? I would assume there is a...

It is on my stove as I type this. I love the ZD grain bill. I love Citra. I really want to mix in some other hops, but I love ZD so much just the way it is I can't bear to mess with it.
